Description

Following a civic public event organised by Dr Golden with MArch Students as part of the 8th Annual Ulster University Festival of Art -in partnership with Ballycastle Chamber of Commerce and Causeway, Coast & Glens Borough Council (CCGBC)- CCGBC invited Dr Golden to curate a semi-permanent public installation of students' interpretive drawings and mapping exercises as part of public facing artwork along derelict areas of the main road from Ballycastle's seafront to its town centre. The art works, original drawings created as part of Golden's ARC710 Studio during Autumn 2015, recorded and interpreted Ballycastle in sketch and multimedia format. Dr Golden oversaw the installation design, developing large format images suitable for public display in collaboration with MArch students and Graphic Design Senior Lecturer Liam McComish. Project funding was provided via CCGBC from DfC (DSD) as part of a project called Revitalise Ballycastle; In June 2016, three 7-metre long printed vinyl banners were created and applied by CCGBC contractors to aluminium panels fixed alongside the derelict listed building, Hugh Boyd Manor House. The panels contained quotes and historical information to engage residents and visitors, turning a previously blank stretch of pedestrian space into an active art installation.
